Drawing on hundreds of newspaper articles and interviews with journalists, Chris Lamb reveals how differently black and white newspapers, and black and white America, viewed racial equality. He shows how white mainstream sportswriters perpetuated the color line by participating in what their black counterparts called a 'conspiracy of silence.' Between 1933 and 1945, black newspapers and the Communist Daily Worker published hundreds of articles and editorials calling for an end to baseball's color line. The efforts of the alternative presses. . constitute one of baseball's - and the civil rights movement's - great untold stories." Notes, bibliography. xiii, 374 pp plus several blank pages.
